RE: Compassionate Care Indoor Visitation/ Intra-facility Activities

Residents, Families, and Friends,

As you may know, on January 28th, 2021, we conducted our 2nd Walgreen Vaccination Clinic here at the facility.  A majority of our Residents and Staff have either participated in these clinics or recovered from the virus.  We are now beyond the 14 days in which the 2nd dose was provided and now feel as though, as a group, we are as protected as we can be against the Covid-19 virus moving forward.  With that being said, we plan to move into the next phase here at SMI and that includes, among other things, being more lenient with our compassionate care indoor visits and lifting some Resident gathering restrictions.

Policy and Procedures

Although we have made this decision as a facility, we must also continue to adhere to regulations from State and Federal agencies to whom we answer.  This includes NCDHHS and CMS.  We are continually working on Policies and Procedures that are most effective for our facility.  This includes preparing education and creating safe visitation practices.  Please be patient as we work to balance the wants and needs of our Residents and Families as well as the facility’s compliance from a regulatory standpoint. 

Indoor Visitation for Compassionate Care

  • Visits will be scheduled in advance and coordinated by our Activity Department Team.  
  • Scheduling for these will begin on Feb. 17th, and visits can begin as early as the week of Feb. 22nd.
  • Each visit will be limited, at least initially, to one person and to a specific length.  This will allow us to more quickly get everyone an in-person visit to all that request one. 
  • Visitors will be required to comply with our Policies and Procedures; including, but not limited to, wearing masks, keeping a minimum of 6 feet spacing at all times, and pre-visit screenings.
  • Education will take place when registering with Activities and again at the time of the visit. 
  • We are currently working on details related to these visits; we will keep you informed as they are made available.
  • Our ability to allow these visits are directly tied to being 14 days out from the last positive Covid case.

We are also pleased to announce that we are restarting some of our out-of-room Activity, Dining, and Therapy schedules on a limited basis. 

Serving our Senior Citizens,

Nathan C. Arnn, Administrator
